I was awarded this by Myfanwy of  a complete surprise I can tell you.
Thank you Myfanwy, I am chuffed of course you think my Blog good enough for this tell you the truth. I am such a natterer I always wonder if send folk to sleep!!!! hee hee


First you have to put the LOGO on your Blog, either in the message or at the side....
Second you have to pass it on to 5 more Bloggers of your choosing....
Third Link their Blogs within the post on your Blog...
Fourth Let them know they have been awarded by making a comment on their Blog.

OK here goes...
First one done, this is the Logo, it is so pretty isn't it

FIVE BLOGGERS I wish to pass the Award to;
well of course, this is going to be difficult because I know so many Bloggers and quite honestly ALL of them deserve an award of some sort, but rules is rules, so, here we are in no particular order...

This is my lovely American friend Noel it seems to me I have known her for ever and a day, she is my long distance friend I really hope to meet one day, she picks me up when I am down, she is perfect. I admire her for her Faith, she knows I don't have any!! but doesn't hold it against me. She is perfect.

This is Ros. I met Ros through a Forum on the Web, she told me one day she was going to be driving quite near to where I live, could she call in. Great, of course she could. She arrived with her husband and we spent a lovely hour or so, chatting and looking at fabrics, whatever, it went so quick - I realised Ros has great Faith like Noel, but like her she doesn't hold it against me that I have none. Ros is a very gifted lady as you will see when you visit her Blog. She too is perfect
Now here we have my friend Marian. I have to say she is not just MY friend she is also a wonderful friend to my daughter, they have more chats actually than I can name. They laugh and joke together and Marian is always there for good advice. When you go to visit her Blog you will see she makes stunning quilts, her favourites being Black and White ones. She has beautiful Grand Children of whom she is justly proud. They are really beautiful children. She gets the most amazing fabrics for us from the market where she lives. She is kind, generous, fun, perfect.

Now this Blog will knock your socks off as the Americans say. I came across Geta's Blog by accident one day whilst surfing the Web. I am so glad I did. I have learnt a wonderful form of Trapunto from Geta, also how to make the most amazing bags. You really must visit her Blog when you have lots of time, get a coffee or something and take your time, again be prepared to be amazed at the fantastic work you will see. Geta is, like her work - perfect.

Here we have Angela's Blog. If you haven't yet discovered her Blog. What on earth have you been doing? You really must go and view it, right now. I met Angela last year at the Festival of Quilts, in Birmingham, she recognised me by my green nails!!! Long story. Anyway, we hit it off right away, and have become firm friends. It is really weird because we think so much alike, when emailing, we have very often said exactly the same things. How weird is that. Angela is talented to excess. I am in awe of her work. Downright jealous if truth be told. She is very often published in the Popular Patchwork Magazine and is beginning a new venture of selling her wonderful designs on the Web. That is hot off the press news folks!!!! So you see you must go and visit you never know what you may find. Because we are so alike I really have to say she is perfect too.   :-)

Oh my goodness there are five there already, I have such a long list ready too,
so please visit;

Oh what the heck I am having SIX, here again is another of my wonderful American Friends, Tonya, I have to tell you she has a hunky partner and a gorgeous little son, Hi E.  We have wonderful chats on Skype very often, she is wonderful, so friendly, so generous, loving, helpful, kind, all of those wonderful things we look for in a friend. She is Perfect.


I could just go on and on and on and on, so rather than do that, just look at my side bar and visit all those wonderful Blogs you see listed there, your time will not be wasted I guarntee. Like me, you may find new friends, you will certainly be inspired.  So there we have it, I have completed the Rules and Regulations!!! Almost!! I am off now to tell the five I have chosen they are getting an award. Hope it is alright with them.
Have fun folks visiting everyone.

From M
WOW Jan - this took me by surprise!

What a lovely idea though....I'm sure NN told you that at the moment I am knee-deep in trying to get my job as we all have to apply for our own....and other people's jobs since the college merged. Didn't realise how thought consuming and mentally exhausting it would be but trying to keep on top of it emotionally too has been hard.

This AWARD and sentiment has given me a real lift today so thank you....and as far as you, NN and Reb are concerned - you are easy people to like....well NN and Reb at least HAHAHAHAHAHA. You I'm afraid of - NOT! heehee.
You guys are always there if I need any help with stuff and keep teaching me stuff too that I have never come across before so again, I thank you for that.
AND our supplier is going to start getting spring fabrics in soon YEH!!!!!!!!!! I have enjoyed my chats with you and NN and it is a great diversion from work problems, so here's to many more.
Today at least Jan - YOU ARE ALL THE WIND BENEATH MY WINGS for the lifting of my spirits that has happenend with this award.
Thanks Guys
M xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx And right back at you!

PS: Jan, I saw it on Saturday and thought of you so a little gift will be winging it's way to you soon...................
